Students recently delved more deeply into color mixing during the free-form color investigation paintings designed by Olivia Gude. These paintings, inspired by modern painters like Paul Klee (left) explore developing a wide variety of colors within a specific hue. Each student chose a base hue and then filled the canvas with many variations of that hue by mixing the hue with black (shade), white (tint), the hue’s complementary (creating neutral colors) as well as mixing with analogous colors (tertiary colors). Students then explore the base hue’s complement as well as applying accent colors as they saw fit.
We hope you enjoy! Stop by the Main Street display now on exhibit to see all of the great investigations:
